Which of the following best completes the passage below?
At large amusement parks, live shows are used very deliberately to influence crowd movements. Lunchtime performances relieve the pressure on a park’s restaurants. Evening performances have a rather different purpose: to encourage visitors to stay for supper. Behind this surface divergence in immediate purpose there is the unified underlying goal of______
(A) keeping the lines at the various rides short by drawing off part of the crowd
(B) enhancing revenue by attracting people who come only for the live shows and then leave the park
(C) avoiding as far as possible traffic jams caused by visitors entering or leaving the park
(D) encouraging as many people as possible to come to the park in order to eat at the restaurants
(E) utilizing the restaurants at optimal levels for as much of the day as possible

I pick (E).

If the restaurant is too crowded during lunch hour, the restaurant is not at its optimal level.
If the restaurant is too empty during supper hour, the restaurant is not at its optimal level.

We need to keep this restaurant at its optimal level for the whole day.


Attracting a lot of people into our restaurant (and thus getting high revenue) goes against our purpose since we're already doing a lunchtime performance to keep too many customers from coming to our restaurant at one time.

Clearly E. The parks want to maintain a steady flow of customers into their exhorbitantly overpriced restaurants. Super long lines discourage guests from waiting 30 minutes for a $10 burger!
